On the morning of January 14, 2011, thousands of Tunisians gathered in a mass protest against the autocratic regime of Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, chanting: "Bread and water but no Ben Ali."

Post-Ben Ali Tunisia has been marked by inflation and economic malaise. As a result, some have voiced their nostalgia for the Ben Ali era.
